Video: Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas Proves Dancing Is Easier If You Wear Sneakers

By

Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas recently launched a sneaker collaboration with the Chinese brand Jump. We caught up with the singer last week at Saks Fifth Avenue, where his shoes are sold for $298 a pair, to check out the collection and see if they’re going to be a good grab this holiday season. If nothing else, the kicks are as shiny as Christmas ornaments, made with four different metallic colors — gold and red, silver, gray, and patent black. They are also covered with zippers, “for people who want to stash certain things,” Taboo says, like candy … or drugs. The Pea, who calls himself a “Sneaker Pimp” and owns over 600 pairs of sneakers himself, also showed us how easy it is to skip and dance in sneakers as opposed to stilettos, particularly doing a move called “rejecting.” And just like we thought, rejection — dancing or otherwise — is tough.
